COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her på Amager ligger vi behageligt langt fra Janteland, vi er ikke bange for excesser og mådehold ligger os uendelig fjernt. Faktisk er det lige før, at vi betragter frådseri som en dyd snarere end en synd – i hvert fald når det handler om én ting: humle! Vi har fundet de humler som skinnede klarest i humlerummet og nærmest tiggede om at blive brugt i rigelige mængder. Og det gjorde vi så – som det sig hør og bør i en Dobbelt IPA af højeste karat. Vi har frådset i syndig grad – og vi kan li’ det! Mon ikke også du kan?
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: At the Amager brewery we are comfortably situated far away from small-town modesty; we are not afraid of excess, and the term “moderation” is simply not found in our vocabulary. To us, gluttony is considered a virtue rather than a sin - at least when it comes to one thing: hops! While making this beer we targeted the hops which shone brightest in our hop room, as if they were almost begging to be used in copious quantities. And that is what we did, as befits a Double IPA of the highest caliber. We have squandered to a sinful degree - and we love it. And we bet that you will too!
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2014
Thanks Tim and Rachel! Clear straw pour with a small white head. Once again, a faint pine a floral aroma with light citrus. Thicker bodied with similar flavor and a weird bold alcoholic pine pop at the end. Question of how old these things are and messy brewing. Farts.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 15, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This is a big resinous hop bomb, grassy, sticky, pine, slight citrus. The malts are sweet and chewy, notes of caramel. I had a hard time with this beer.

thirstyrabbit (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Slightly cloudy pale golden body. Aroma has flowers and tropical fruity hops: mango, pineapple, almost rotting tangerine. Surprisingly thin and unmalty mouthfeel with big hop bitterness. Finish has oily hops. They admit that they just threw all their favourite hops (6 types) into kettle and the result is expectedly ambiguous - this is indeed a big hoppy beer but the hoppiness has no defined direction. I think the real sin here is Greed - you don’t need to use all the hop varietals you like at the same time. You can’t always expect synergy to happen when you combine random things: more often than not, less is more... I suppose it’s alright if you’re into that sort of things.

VsXsV (1896) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
Draught. Hazy orange liquid with small white head. Aroma of citrus, mango, tangerine, weed, dried fruit, bread, caramel and grapefruit. Taste is dry and high bitter with notes of citrus, caramel, grain, bread and husky astringency. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice. A bit diacetyl though.
